← Mai-High Festival Arc
It is November 12th, five days have passed since finding all the Goddesses and everyone from Vintage has been captured. Mari has returned from South America but Keima has been recluse since then. Elsie, worried about her brother checked on him and asked what he was doing. After a brief pause, Keima startled her when he yells that he doesn't know and then went on a rant on what game would be better. Before he could finish, his mother picked him up and kicks him out of his room while telling him to go outside.
Elsie relates this to Haqua who has returned to the Runaway Spirit Squad. Haqua then relates to Elsie that Nora was recognized for her part for exterminating Vintage and was promoted to Head District Chief. She then complains that the complaint of the Public Safety Department's unjust interrogation was also credited to Nora even though she was the victim. Elsie surmises that now the Runaway Spirit Squad won't have any work to do anymore since the goddesses who sealed the Weiss have resurrected they can now capture the runaway spirits that fled to the human world. Haqua wonders if it could be that easy but Elsie just insist that it is since the goddesses are strong. Elsie then asked Haqua to watch the recordings of her performing as Kanon unaware that Keima has left for school already.
As Keima was on his way to school he notices Tenri by a light post eating a riceball. Tenri then nervously greeted Keima; she was unprepared since she thought he wasn't coming out that day as well. She then asked Keima if he was going to school but her stomach growled which then Keima tells her to finish eating first. After eating, Tenri tells him that she was glad he came out of his house; Keima doesn't respond. She continues and tells him that she thinks that no one would be mad at him since he was trying to protect everyone; Keima interrupts her, saying that he was fine. He explains that since all the goddesses are out, the hunt for the runaway spirits is now over and he can finally return to the world of games.
Tenri says nothing and continues to follow Keima. After a while Keima asks her how long she would continue to follow him since she goes to a different school. He then asked her how she got out Diana's wings since he didn't do anything. Tenri tells him that she told Diana what comes next.
Tenri's voice cuts out and Keima looks back only to see that Tenri (or anybody for that matter) was no longer there. The school mysterious glowed and Keima notices a girl holding an orb at the base of the central tree.
Tenri taps Keima on the back, snapping him out of his trance, and asked him what was wrong since he was acting strange. Keima wondered what had happened and then tells Tenri to go to her school. Meanwhile back at Cafe Grandpa, Elsie just noticed that Keima wasn't at home. Haqua guessed that he might have gone to school already which made Elsie rush out to school complaining that she wanted to go with Keima.
Haqua watches how energetic Elsie was and decides to go back to her home but then the Sensor beeps with a transmission from the higher ups. After confirming her identity she read the Notification but couldn't believe it. Nora then appeared at the door and bragged about her armband but then put it aside and asked Haqua if she read the note. She answered that she did but still did not believe it.
The note says that Dokuro Skull committed treason and will be discharged as punishment immediately. It also says that her position will now be filled by the constitutional ministry's deputy director, Needles Moura Rami.
Nora then tells Haqua that Dokuro's discharge was different from Haqua's since it was direct orders from the directors. She then remarks on the treason that Dokuro was accused of even shocked her; Dokuro was the leader of Vintage. This information shock Haqua speechless, Nora then continues to say her own thoughts that Vintage was a pawn and had a mastermind behind it but never thought Dokuro would be it's boss. Haqua refuses to believe it to be true but Nora reminds her that Dokuro did make a contract with Vintage and that is how she saved her. This made Haqua wonder why Dokuro was involved with Vintage, Nora tells her that she doesn't know why but since Dokuro was convicted, peace should return to New Hell.
Back at Maijima Private High School, Keima walks to the classroom (not noticing that Mobuko and Miyako was staring at him) wondering that since the goddesses have been found that he should return to his normal life. When he opens the door he bumps into Ayumi. He wonders what he should say to her.
Ayumi preempts him by asking who he is. Keima was shocked and asked what she means: was it because she was angry or that the goddesses wiped her memory. Ayumi then tells him that the school is an all-girls school confusing Keima. Then the girls in the school exclaimed that there was a boy in the school and to call a teacher. Keima tried to explain himself but Ayumi smacked him before he could say anything and told him to get out. Keima runs away while girls accuse him for a pervert. Running down the stairs, Keima wonders how it became an all-girls school. The stairs then crumble under his feet along with the rest of the school. As he fell, Keima sees the girl with the orb again.
Keima lands on the ground face down. He then hears Elsie call for him and lifts himself up. Elsie asked him what he was doing on the ground and then complains to him that he left her behind. Staring at the school he notes that a strange occurrence happens again whenever he tries to enter the school and concludes that something is going on. Meanwhile, Diana was nearby and sees the miasma enveloping the school and quickly decides to tell the other goddesses.
Back at Cafe Grandpa, Haqua tells Nora that she is going back to Hell to save Chief Dokuro but Nora informs her that it was too late, the chief was already disposed of for apparently resisting, shocking Haqua. Nora summarizes that the ferocious true nature of New Hell is starting to surface. Meanwhile back at school Keima was busy testing in triggering the event again while Elsie just stares wondering what he was doing.
As Keima tries to walk to the school again, he notes strange things are happening whenever he gets near the school. Elsie guesses that maybe he was tired which Keima wonders if he is hallucinating like during days after playing too much games which made Elsie wonders if there are days he doesn't play too much.
Ayumi then came up to greet Keima, warmly calling him 'darling' which confused him. Ayumi then gives him a bento which made him ask why. Ayumi tells him that she wanted to do it because she is his wife shocking everyone in earshot. Suddenly Yui came in on a rickshaw pulled by Okamoto interrupting them. She came to give Keima her own bento calling herself his wife. Ayumi complains to her saying that she is his wife but Yui just tells her that she would just marry Keima also shocking Ayumi. Yui then list why she would be the best wife such as: she can sew, cook and play the koto. Yui then takes out a wedding dress for Keima to wear which made him complain. Suddenly Tsukiyo landed on Keima and tells him to come to the rooftop to have tea. Meanwhile Shiori was in the library looking through books on food and how to be a good wife. Back outside, an airship with Kanon on it advertising chocolate to give "to the one you love". Elsie states that the situation is like something from one of Keima's game but Keima was not amused as he was being hugged by Ayumi and Yui.
Meanwhile back at Cafe Grandpa, Haqua was defending Chief Dokuro to Nora saying that there is no way that Dokuro was part of Vintage since she was the hero who sealed the Weiss. Nora guess that they were just looking for an excuse since the chief was executed with no formal procedures. Haqua then hypothesizes that they planed to kill the chief since the beginning. Nora continues to say that it isn't over since there are "leftovers". She runs down what has happened: Vintage was a pawn and the chief was erased, and removing the Runaway Spirit Squad and the Weiss from the equation she asked Haqua who was left. Haqua quickly figures out that the goddesses are the next target. Nora then tells Haqua that she is leaving since she didn't come to talk to her but needed to see Keima prompting Haqua to ask why. Nora tells her that she is there to give him a memento from Chief Dokuro and shows a bag to Haqua.
Back with Keima who stirs awake in his room by his mother. He then notices that she and everything is in 2D 8-bits. He left for school and meets with Yokkyun and walks with her. When he entered the school everything wipes away.
Keima, asleep on his desk, was wakened by Kodama-sensei. Keima then notices that he is back to being 3D and tantrum wanting to go back. Elsie then calls to him asking what is wrong. Keima then notices her in a boys uniform and inquire her about it. She then tells him it was because they are in an all-boys school. The news surprised Keima but Elsie tells him that it has been that way. Keima thinks it over and rationalizes that he has been going through alternate worlds and the school grounds is the key and has to leave the school. He tries to leave the classroom but Elsie stops him. She then tells him to first catch some runaway spirits and save every boy using love. That statement shocked Keima and he refuses to do it wanted to reconfirm that the runaway spirits should be in girls. Elsie then tells him that they have been that way ever since which made Keima to state that he hates the setting.
Outside the school, Haqua and Nora arrived and sees the school shrouded in miasma. Nora complains they have to search for Keima in the place. Haqua then asked Nora what is it that Dokuro gave to Nora to give to Keima. Nora shows her an orb and tells her that Dokuro told her that it was the key to save the world. They then heard Keima yelling from within the miasma engulfed school.
Back in the school, Elsie is encouraging Keima to fill the gaps in the heart of boys with love but Keima is refusing to do so while running away. Keima is angry that he can't escape from the alternate worlds. He tries to think things through, rationalizing that it is a dream but when he reaches the bottom of the steps he comes to the courtyard and is now surrounded by the school in ruins. He wonders if he could escape the dream but then hears a voice telling him that it isn't a dream. Keima tries to look to where the voice is coming from. The voice continues to talk about dreams, the infinite amount of choices, and dreams crumbling. The voice then tells Keima that where they are is the future on the world. Keima inquires the voice on the meaning. He then thinks the voice sounded familiar. He then sees the girl with the orb again at the base of the tree.
Meanwhile, Vulcan and Mars wonder who was responsible for the miasma and Mars concludes that it is a spell of a Weiss. Meanwhile at the library Minerva also concludes the same thing and notices that it is coming from nearby the theater.
Back with Keima and the girl, he states that he recognize her as the one he keeps seeing in the parallel world he goes through. He then asked her who she is.She tells him that she doesn't know and questions why she is there. She then states that she didn't want to be born anymore. Keima just brushoff what she said to the side and asked her how to exit. The girl said nothing but Keima sees her regress in age till she is a baby.
Meanwhile, Haqua and Nora are looking for Keima but are having a hard time with all the students in school. At the same time, Minerva brings her sisters Mercury, Mars and Vulcan to where the miasma is coming from. There they meet up with a worried Elsie who tells them that Keima was acting weird and that he suddenly disappeared from the front gate. She looked and found him on the ground leaking out miasma.
Tenri then came from behind a tree and told the goddesses that she is glad that they came. She assured Elsie that Keima will be fine and that he is dreaming of the future of the world. They questioned her if she knows something. Tenri just states that Keima has finally came to the place. She then tells the goddesses that Keima needs to go on a journey and asked for their assistance. Vulcan asked where he would journeying to. Tenri tells them that he is going to Maijima ten years in the past.
Later, as Keima was still laid down unconscious, Tenri was explaining things to the goddesses. Apollo came by as well and with all the goddesses gathered, they made a magic circle to prepare Keima to travel back. Later Keima finally awoke and groggily wondered if he returned to the real world this time. He then notices that he was in the middle of a circle and wonders what is it. The goddesses were busy within the barrier prepping it while Elsie was outside wondering what they are doing. Tenri then came up to Keima and after finding her words tells him, to his confusion, that he will be traveling back in time and that he has something that he needs to do when he gets there. Meanwhile as Apollo complains to hurry up since Kanon has a busy schedule, Vulcan wonders if everything that happened up to now was all part of some grand scheme.
Keima, thinking that he is still dreaming, feigns falling back asleep hoping to escape the parallel world; Tenri tickles him and tells him to listen. Keima then complains to her on what she means by back in time; Mercury then announces that they are ready and asked where to send him. As Haqua and Nora arrived at the barrier they meet up with Elsie. Nora was confused at the spell since it is not from Hell yet the aura of the Weiss fills the sky. Tenri then came out of the barrier, going up to Nora she asked her if she brought the "key" but Nora didn't know what she was talking about. Tenri then describes it as an orb which Nora then takes out and shows it. Tenri was relieved that it was there and notes that with it Keima can return to the past.
Vulcan then noticed that the key had arrived and tells the other Goddesses to begin. As they empowered the spell, their wings grew with power and the orb flew out of Nora's hand into the barrier above the circle. Keima asked Tenri what is happening as she brings Elsie in the barrier telling her that she needs to go with Keima.
Keima then asked Tenri again what she meant by the past and why he needs to go. Tenri just tells him that he would find out when he gets there. Keima then rants that she is taking traveling to the past lightly. Tenri apologizes but tells Keima that it is only something that he can do; he needs to save a girl and that he probably already met her. Keima then thinks of the girl he kept running into as he went through parallel worlds. Tenri continues and says that if he could save her, everyone's futures could be affected before switching with Diana to power the spell.
